There is a lot of expressed and repressed anger in the USA right now.

Prius is a step in the right direction.  Tesla model 3 is the jump to the right solution, particularly in stop and go traffic. In Calif., you get to drive in the bus/carpool lane with an electric.

Instead of burning gas while parked on the freeway, the Tesla will only be warming or cooling the passengers, not using hardly any power for movement.  It will also creep and steer automatically, freeing you to relax. 320 mile range.   It's the best solution for the planet, given that 50% of the CO2 emissions is from vehicles and the other 50% is from power plants.

In NY, your should care about the more frequent and more intense hurricanes.  These will only get worse as long as you drive ICE.

No hate... but driving is a necessity I prefer to enjoy it as much as possible, and for me, more exhilarating performance is more enjoyable ;)

Nice 300ZX!  I drove one of those back in the late 80's (roommate's girlfriend) and thought it was an excellent sports car.

I can envision a time (5 years?) where the bulk of our household fleet will be EV.

I will still likely own an ICE car.  Currently really happy with the CLK500 I picked up a a few years ago.

Wanted to own another V8 before they are outlawed forever.

Not entirely true... https://www.epa.gov/ghgemissions/sources-greenhouse-gas-emissions, and electric vehicles need to get their power from something, so those emissions from the power plants would be less if they weren't generating power for electric cars.

We need to better job harnessing the biggest energy source at our disposal... the Sun.
